Just to be clear, did you wipe the outside acrylic with a towel or something?  If not, then start there and see if it is condensation on the outside of the acrylic. 

 

What brand of tubes are you using?  Soft or hard?  Are the tubes clear or frosted or some other color?

Corsair Hardline Tubes 14mm Frosted. No i didnt wipe the outside but i will try it today but i think its in the inside and its getting bigger and it looks like its on the metal part.

Great!  So we can eliminate any issues with compatibility between the tubes and the liquid..  We've can also rule out environment as a possible issue. 

What brand of radiators are you using, and did you rinse the inside of them before installation?  Also what brand and model of CPU block are you using?  What brand and kind of pump?

I#m using one Corsair XR5 360mm radiator and one XR7 240mm radiator, sadly i did not rinse the inside because the manual said they are prewashed.

For the CPU im using the Corsair XC7 RGB block and the pump is a xd5 also from corsair. its a pump/reservoir kombo

Ok, so you have a complete Corsair system.  That rules out liquid compatibility as the issue.  How long have you been running the system?   What speed is the pump set to?

some people have had this issue with brand new builds.. As for the "no need to flush", you can throw the claim in the drain, along with a few good rinses of the radiators.

Most manufacturers claim that, most of the time you still have flux in the rads, if not small bits of metal that you end up finding in the waterblock fins after a few hours of starting the loop first time.

That topic below may help, but since you have a full Corsair loop with corsair coolant, it's adviseable to reach out to the support.
